I'm bored and I'm curious how much everyone has gained so far.

I saw my OB on Tuesday. I am 15 weeks along and I've gained 3 pounds.

Everyone was telling me for a while that I was loosing weight. Unfortunately I really don't think I did - I don't really have a scale at home, so who knows for sure. I think that I was loosing some weight in my face though and gaining a bit of water weight and belly.

What about everyone else?

I'm 15 weeks on Sunday and I've lost about 5 lbs. Not good, but from like 11-13 weeks I really couldn't eat ANY food. So now I get to gain like crazy. Woohoo!!!

I'm 15 weeks and have lost about that many pounds. I'd feel better having gained something.

I'm 16 wks and I've gained about 5 lbs...

I type this one handed while I eat donuts and chocolate milk this morning...not my usual breakfast (and not very good for me), but I was 'splurging' and felt good about it until this post reminded me that maybe I should eat healthier! hahaha!

Well I guess I'm the big gainer of this group so far. I am 18 weeks 3 days and I've gained about 20 Ibs so far. And people keep saying how small I am, NOT (I was an average weight to begin with too). Although I must say I don't stress about it really.

And at the doughnuts and chocolate milk, Mrs_Hos!

Ok... gotta put this smiley in just because DS is sitting here making a chomping sound when he sees the tomato go by... : Too funny!

18 weeks - I gained about 5 lbs but then got sick and lost them. I've been eating enough that I am sure they are coming back on soon!

I'm 18 weeks today and have gained 15 lbs so far. I actually gained most in the first trimester b/c even though I felt like crap I only threw up twice and all I wanted to eat was bread, bagels, pasta, mac and cheese, etc. so needless to say carbs are a quick way to put on weight. Now I'm eating much better and the weight gain has slowed down.

16 weeks, no weight gain yet. I lost 3 lbs during the first few weeks, then didn't feel great for a few weeks and definetely did noat eat as I usually do.
I'm not underweight so I'm not worried.

15 weeks, and I haven't gained anything. I was a little chubby to start with, so it just seems things are rearranging a bit. I look thinner in some places, but I have had to switch to maternity pants.

My appetite has gone through the roof this week, though, so I expect to add on some pounds in the next few weeks.

I am 16 weeks and haven't gained... i think i lost a pound... I didn't gain any for 13 weeks because I wasn't eating fat, and now it is too hot here to make myself eat very much! All I want is fruit. My midwife says I have a month to gain ten pounds...

Emilyrose, I've got the fruit cravings too, and one way I've been meeting them -- and getting in more protein at the same time -- is by making fruit smoothies with protein powder. It's been hot here, too, and sometimes this is the only thing I want to eat!

I'm about 16.5 weeks and I haven't gained very much yet - maybe a pound or two. It hard to tell at 'official' weigh ins because the first appt I was wearing jeans and it was in the afternoon so my weight was naturally higher than it would have been in the morning, the second appointment, I was wearing khaki pants and it was in the morning, so it looked like I'd lost 2 lbs, and my third appointment I was wearing jeans again so it looked like I was +2 from the first appt. All my regular pants still fit so I'm assuming that I haven't gained any more than a couple lbs but I also have an extra 30lbs on me so I don't feel a need to gain much weight yet. I can feel my belly changing though so I know something going on in there!

I am 16 weeks and 2 days and I have gained 10-12 pounds!!! This is my third child and I look like I am 6 months pregnant!! I walk everyday and I am busy with my two other kids and I eat fairly healthy!!! I gain lots of weight when I am pregnant and I am fairly slim when I am not pregnant!! I normally weigh around 120 pounds and with my last pregnancy I weighed 186 pounds 9 months pregnant!!! I have big healthy babies no matter what I do....just made to have beautiful healthy babies!!! Just wish I didn't gain so much because I hear it can be dangerous!!

I'm 18 weeks 4 days ... I gained 2 lbs then lost them. So no gain here yet, hope to hold off a few more weeks ... but I've finally popped and still craving chocolates and chips all the junk food.

Okay, I was secretly freaking out that I had gained a LOT more than that. In my head, I was mis-thinking last prenatal's weight... and I thought I gained 10 pounds in the last 4 weeks! It was such a relief to find out that I was just smoking crack (pregnancy brain?) and I actually LOST .75 pounds from last time.

So I'm up about 4.25 pounds this pregnancy at 17w1d.

i'm 16 1/2 wks and have gained about 15 lbs. i feel like it's a lot, but i have to remind myself i definitely could have stood to gain a few lbs before getting pg, so i think i'm fine. (though it's hard to reassure yourself when the numbers keep creeping up.)

Do I get a prize (mmm maybe some cake ) for gaining the most weight so far. :
It will be interesting see how it plays out at the end. I'm guessing I'll gain another 20Ibs before this babe is born giving me a total gain of 40Ibs. About what I normally gain w/ pregnancy.
